Obama’s Plan to Bankrupt Coal Continues Without Congress

Remember back during the 2008 presidential campaign when Barack Obama promised to bankrupt anyone who wanted to build a coal-fired power plant and essentially shut down the coal industry?

For those not paying attention, despite his inability to get cap-and-trade passed, he is still pursuing this plan. Now, he’s doing it via EPA regulations known as New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)– which amount to a “cap” without the “trade.”

There is a virtual metric ton wrong with these standards, which would impose firm caps on the amount of carbon new coal-fired power plants can emit. (Note that Obama and his EPA are also considering extending the rules to existing coal-fired power plants, which sounds even more awesome).

This waste of oxygen has been the worst thing to happen to our country...EVER!

He has set us back in global reputation, production, standard of living - not to mention the backward socialist movements that Lenin, Marx, Mussolini, and Hitler would all be proud of!

anonymous 7:59, This American, (me) created a Blog that now brings in millions of people. We deliver articles like this one to better educate the public and not brainwash them like the MSM.

So, think again because some Republicans are fighting back the best way possible.

7:59-Tea Party Republicans are fighting, every day. They are being persecuted by the Media, The IRS and the Department of Justice for their efforts. How do you fight a regime that has an Eric Holder refusing to follow the law?
